COVID-19 Update

April 7, 2020

Please remember these reminders regarding student, faculty and staff health from UNT’s Student Health and Wellness Center:

  • Students who are experiencing possible symptoms of COVID-19 or have other health-related questions should contact the Health and Wellness Center at 940-565-2333 during normal business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday). Students seeking assistance outside of normal business hours can use our virtual resources. Please remember it is best to call ahead for instructions rather than show up at a crowded waiting room while exhibiting symptoms.
  • Faculty and staff who are experiencing possible symptoms of COVID-19 or have other health-related questions, please contact your primary care physician for further instructions. Please follow all instructions you are given and notify UNT’s Emergency Management and Safety Services staff if you are directed to self-isolate or self-quarantine by your healthcare provider.
  • Anyone experiencing any type of respiratory symptoms should stay home, self-isolate from other individuals, and avoid the UNT campus for 14 days or until evaluated by a healthcare provider.

The Murphy Center at the G. Brint Ryan College of Business would like to share information regarding external funding resources available to UNT students, faculty, and alumni during these difficult times. On the Murphy Center website, there is a section with a list of external funding opportunities that is updated bi-weekly.


For essential personnel on campus, the Center for Leadership and Service is partnering with Carter BloodCare to host a blood drive from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, April 9, outside of the University Union. There will be limited spaces available for donation due to social distancing guidelines. In order to donate, you must make an online appointment


Going above and beyond: Stories from UNT’s COVID-19 response:

Professor Trish Kaminski wants to say “brava and bravo” to psychology professors Vicki Campbell and Randy Cox. They have done and continue to do an amazing job transitioning the psychology department and clinic to function remotely. Their dedication and leadership have allowed approximately 40 faculty and staff, 100 graduate students, thousands of undergrads and hundreds of clinic clients to teach, learn and conduct or receive therapy safely during this health crisis.

If you know of someone who is going above and beyond, please share their information with untpresident@unt.edu so we can give them a shoutout.


Don’t forget that healthalerts.unt.edu is updated frequently with new information about how we are working together through this global health crisis.
